When Hurricane Maria struck the island of Puerto Rico on September 20, 2018, Clint Woods and his wife felt a tug on their hearts to help the people there in any way that they could. Clint works as a metal-worker and was doubtful that he would be able to contribute very much to those working on the ground. Nevertheless, he obeyed God’s call to help those in need and joined the SBC of Virginia Disaster Relief team from Soul Purpose Community Church that made the trip in January of 2018. “I didn’t know what I was doing,” Clint recalls. “I thought maybe I was just coming to protect my wife.”
While the team was searching for projects that they would be able to tackle in Arecibo, the group found a family that needed to patch their roof that had been destroyed in the hurricane. Sheets of metal had to be cut in a certain way to be able to cover the roof of their house, a job that required an experienced metal-worker just like Clint. He was able to jump right in using his unique set of skills to be able to do meaningful work for a family in need.
“No matter who you are, you can be used,” said Clint Woods, church member of Soul Purpose Community Church. “God knows what he’s doing, and he has a plan for each of us.”
